|Hello Friday! I am soooo glad you are here finally. I'm hoping for some sleep in time this weekend! Speaking of sleep, we got this pillow top thing for the bed...Tony's plan, not really mine and I'm having the hardest time sleeping with it. It's like sleeping on marshmallow for me. We have a heavy comforter on top and the marshmallow think on the bottom...I'm getting lost in all this fluff and can't turn over. The worst part, Tony is sleeping better with it. Ugh, finding the bedding balance after being married for almost 17 years...
Anyway, as for the title of this post, let's dress up some salad! Truth be told, I normally go for mustard, hot sauce, over easy eggs or hummus
when it comes to dressing. Well, I finally purchased a jar of Marmite
a few weeks ago and I started playing with it. I love the stuff straight up, but I wanted to make something a little different to go with my salad and socca this time.
is no joke when it comes to flavor and texture.
Think thick molasses texture with a bite like worsteshire sauce. I think that's a good way to describe it. In other words...AMAZING! Oh and super loaded with B vitamins! Bonus! Heather
, you ladies know what I'm talking about!
I've been taking shots of apple cider vinegar thanks to the suggestions from my favorite twins, but I figured if I could make the stuff taste better by using it in my dressing, why not?!
1/3 cup tomato sauce
1 TBSP apple cider vinegar
dash of garlic powder
dash of onion powder
Shake it all up!
This dressing is really creamy and a little bit salty with a tang. YUM!
These days, I go for some socca
on the side toasted up for my croutons. I love it! I changed this one up a bit by adding oatmeal and I loved the crunch and the slight whole grain sweetness. It definitely complemented the tangy dressing on my salad!
1/2 cup chickpea (garbanzo bean) flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)
1/4 cup quick oats or oat flour (make sure it's gluten free)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder (optional)
1/4 tsp onion powder (optional
3/4 cup warm water
pepper and salt for the top
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
Mix all the ingredients together and pour into a 9 inch cake pan coated with olive oil (I use the olive oil spray). Sprinkle some salt and pepper on top. Bake for 15-55 minutes depending on how crispy you want it. Remove from pan.
Have a great Friday!
